Cincinnati Hamilton & Dayton Railroad, Pullman Compartment Cars (Train) - Framed Picture - 11" x 14"
The Cincinnati, Hamilton and Dayton Railroad was a railroad based in the U.S. state of Ohio that existed between its incorporation on March 2, 1846, and its acquisition by the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad in December 1917.
It was originally chartered to build from Cincinnati to Hamilton, Ohio, and then to Dayton, a distance of 59 mi; further construction and acquisition extended the railroad, and by 1902 it owned or controlled 640 mi of railroad.
The original CH&D was founded by John Alexander Collins, who was born in Staffordshire, England.
He came to the US as a child in 1825, and worked as a locomotive engineer until moving to Ohio in 1851 to open the CH&D.
